Product Description

Amazon.ca

Mel Brooks's 1981, three-part comedy--set in the Stone Age, the Roman Empire, and the French Revolution--is pure guilty pleasure. Narrated by Orson Welles and featuring a lot of famous faces in guest appearances (beyond the official cast), the film opens well with Sid Caesar playing a caveman, then moves along to the unlikely but somehow hilarious juxtaposition of Caesar's soldiers (the other Caesar, not Sid) with pot humor, and ends on a dumb-funny note in the French bloodbath. This is a take-it-or-leave-it movie, and it works best if you're in a take-it-or-leave-it mood. --Tom Keogh

Great movie- Not his best, but still up there in comedy land - an amusing and mildly funny walk on the absurd.

Recommend to all that like to smile and laugh !!

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Mel Aug. 27 2013

For modern slapstick, what can beat this. Being Jewish likely helps, but I'm not and can still appreciate most of the jokes and gags. The series of drop into history moments are random but raucous. Whatever happened to part 2?

5.0 out of 5 stars written by David Laing, not Julia Laing July 5 2004
Format:DVD
One of Mel Brook's finest movies, in this one, he sets out to parody history, from the Stone Age, to the French Revolution. The first time period is the Stone Age, where we see the first homosapien and homosexual marriage, and discover how music was invented. Next, in a very short bit, we see Moses coming down from a mountain with the 15 commandments, until he drops one slab, and it becomes the 10 commandments. The next era is the Roman Empire, where after Philatipis[or something like that] gets a gig to do comedy for Caescar, he offends, the emporer, so him and his new found friend must fight each other to the death, but instead stop fighting and try to escape from Rome. The 4th era is by far the funniest, and the most offensive, The Spanish Inquisition. So in a musical extravaganza, we see how the Catholics tried to convert the Jews to become Catholics, and in the last part, we behold the French Revolution, and one of the greatest lines in this movie. So, see this hilarious movie, but if you are easily offended, then do not see this. The only thing that aggravates me was that Brooks had a part 2 planned out, but it was never released. At the end of the movie, we get a preview of the unreleased History of The World part 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Not In The Past! April 20 2004
Format:DVD
When you see this movie you will laugh, cry, fall to your knees and puke...well, maybe not cry, but close to it! We can all thank Mel Brooks for this great movie that can sumerize the life of man throughout our history. He is truly the greatest director ever in the history of the world. The world would be a better place if we all just bought this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Movie Created In The History Of The World April 20 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
When you have seen this movie, you can never turn back. Some movies have action, some horror, but this movie is just damn funny. If you like Spaceballs, Wayne's World, or Monty Pyton and the Holy Grail, you will like this movie even more! Only a miracle could bring a better movie than this.

Not one of Mel Brooks' funniest or best films ( like Robin Hood: Men in tights)but definately too funny to miss.

Definately worth the time to at least watch..

5.0 out of 5 stars When will the German DVD be available??? April 12 2004
Format:DVD
I didn't count the times I ran to the cinema to watch this great great movie - yes, one may argue of a particular joke coming better along the way than another, and Harvey Korman may not find it funny at all to call him Count de Money (de Monet, de MONET!!!). Anyway, this it is one of the best comedys ever - especially when compared with most of today's "funny" stuff...
Wheeeeeen will finally the German DVD of this milestone in film history become available??
Maybe I have to become king before this happens, because you know.... It's good to be the king!
